My Easter weekend was spent in NYC enjoying amazing weather and taking in a number of art galleries and museums. The weekend started off meeting Leah and Justin from Pollack/Weitzner at Grand Central to see the Nick Cave performance piece. Cave is an incredibly talented fabric sculptor, dancer & performance artist. He is from JeffersonMissouri and studied at the Kansas City Art Institute & Cranbrook
 

 
 
 
Next, off to see various exhibitions at the Museum of Arts + DesignAmerican artist Michael Aschenbrenner creates glass sculptures inspired from his service in the Vietnam war when he broke his leg at 18 years of age. By chance, I own five pieces that are displayed in my guest room in Kansas City!

 Amazing wood veneered textiles by Elisa Strozyk (Germany)
 
 
Justin, Leah and I also went to the Asian Pacific American Institution at NYU to see works by Roger Shimonura who is from my home town of Lawrence, Kansas. Shimonura is a retired professor of painting from The University of Kansas where I studied Textiles Design.
 
 
 
At the end of the day, this Easter bunny-eared dog had a group of us standing on the street taking pictures of him!
